Former 'Survivor' Producer Will Go Back to Mexico to be Tried for Wife's Murder
Bruce Beresford-Redman, the former producer of "Survivor" who's accused of killing his wife in Mexico, has decided to go back to Mexico of his own accord and face trial rather than appeal a U.S. federal judge's decision to allow him to be handed over to the Mexican judicial system, reports City News Service.
Beresford-Redman, 40, is accused of murdering Monica Burgos, 41, while the couple was vacationing in Quintana Roo with their two young children. Her body was found, beaten and nude, 25 meters from a hotel in which the couple was staying. Beresford-Redman was allegedly having an affair with a co-worker, and Burgos had recently asked for a divorce.
U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez wrote the decision allowing Beresford-Redman to be tried in Mexico on December 21, saying that there were "pages upon pages of competent evidence" incriminating the reality TV producer in Burgos' death.
But Beresford-Redman's lawyer insists that his client is innocent, and that he believes that the Mexican court system will find as much.
